Description of Lilacs
Painted during the darkness of the COVID-19 pandemic, the quarantine serves as an isolated time in my studio to do some soul searching. Looking for hope in nature, I found inspiration in the beauty of lilacs in bloom. Painting with intensity, sanding and rebuilding the copper surface with paint over and over again, I searched for the essence of the lilacs. Its delicate form and depth of color mesmerized me and provided me with a focus, as I escaped the sadness and anxiety I felt inside.
